What the Critics Say...

CAUTION: Here be spoilers


“Julia Ducournau follows Raw with one of the wildest films to ever screen at Cannes…During the first half of Julia Ducournau’s Titane, it’s hard to tell if you’re watching the most fucked up movie ever made about the idea of found family, or the sweetest movie ever made about a serial killer who has sex with a car, poses as the adult version of a local boy who went missing a decade earlier, and then promptly moves in with the kid’s still-grieving father. During the second half, it becomes obvious that it’s both — that somehow it couldn’t be one without the other. – Hollywood Reporter

“The most shocking film of 2021” – BBC

Titane premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and went on to win the Palme d’or 2021.
